Adidas NMD Trail Primeknit x White Mountaineering
Japanese label White Mountaineering has partnered with Adidas Originals to reinterpret its heritage styles with a modern streetwear lean. Borrowing from classic trail shoes, these NMDs take the iconic shape to the next level. While we can’t recommend climbing mountains in them, they do have a reflective tongue, alongside a Boost sole and Primeknit upper, which might help when you need to SOS on Everest.
Available at Hanon, priced £149.
Puma Cell Bubble x Trapstar
Continuing their partnership, Trapstar and Puma have dropped an all-white version of the Cell Bubble sneaker the pair released at the end of last year. Inspired by the beautiful game, the kicks are cut from premium leather and neoprene so you can look like you’re about to step on the pitch without the need for ugly neons.
Available from 18 February at Hanon, priced £109.
Diadora N.9000 x Bait x Dreamworks Felix The Cat
Novelty footwear and cartoon tie-ins has a patchy history. However, these Diadora kicks, a collaboration between California-based sneaker boutique Bait and Felix the Cat, will have you feline fine thanks to velvet suede uppers, nubuck overlays and a graphic illustration on the insole.
Available at End, priced £159.
Pointer Seeker Unlined Pebble
Limited edition footwear has a habit of being more flash than fash. But these sneakers from Pointer’s Pebble Pack tick the box for being both exclusive and wearable. The London brand’s Seekers model has gained the dimpled leather treatment in a gingerbread colourway that’s finished with a gum outsole.
Available at Hanon, priced £115.
Nike Classic Cortez Premium
The Nike Cortez that debuted way back in 1972 is widely considered Nike’s OG design masterpiece; appearing on feet as diverse as the N.W.A and Forrest Gump. Bringing the classic profile into the 21st century, Nike has added full-grain leather uppers and debossed logos to a Thunder Blue colourway.
Available from 18 February at Nike, priced £80.
Common Projects Achilles Retro Low Suede
This year is already shaping up to be a big one for colour. Heck, even the sleek white Scandi-inspired designers at Common Projects are coming round to the idea. The cult New York brand’s latest drop features updates of its iconic Achilles Low model, rendered in soft sand suede with contrast black and tan leather accents.
Available at End, priced £309.

Today he’s turning out collaborations via his brand Fragment Design, the latest of which is a dinner suit-inspired rework of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star ’70.
Available from 18 February at Converse, priced £95.
